I am Joe McPherson.  I have lived in Johnson City my entire life.  I graduated from University High School and ETSU.  I am married to my beautiful wife Paula who teaches at Science Hill in the Health Sciences department.  I am the proud father of 3 Science Hill graduates  Marissa, Corey, and Tucker.  I enjoy exercising with my wife.  She even convinced me to do yoga with her.  I enjoy golf, fishing, and most other sports.  Our military men and women and their families have a special place in my heart.   I am very blessed to come to a job that I enjoy each day.  I enjoy helping our students with important decisions about life after high school.

I am a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University (B.A. in General Studies) and Milligan University (M.A. in School Counseling). I am a native of South Flordia and Kentucky. I moved to TN after meeting my loving husband, Brad, in 2014 and married him a year later. We have two beautiful children, Taylor and Tye. We also have 5, yes 5, fur babies (Judas, Maya, Wrigley, Bently, and Pepper), and 5 chickens. I have a long history of education through both of my parents. My mother was a teacher for many years, then became a school counselor, serving kids for 38 years. My father taught school for years and is now a mental health counselor. Both parents taught me so much and are a big part of the reason I love the education and mental health systems. I love to travel, learn and try new things, cooking and baking, shopping for antiques, reading, and spending as much time as I can with family and friends. I became a school counselor to make a difference in young minds and guide them on their journey of finding their career path and life. Being a counselor to me is not just a position in the school setting; it is my calling and passion. I'm am honored to be a counselor at Science Hill High School.

Hello, I am Holly English. I'm a native of the Tri-cities area and a former graduate of Milligan University, M.A. in Clinical Mental Health and in School Counseling. I love working with our students, and helping them grow and mature academically, socially, and emotionally. I have a passion for mental health and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health. When I'm not at school, you will usually find me outside hiking, biking, or gardening. I truly enjoy spending time getting to know each of my students, and I cannot wait to meet you soon.

Hello students and parents!  I am very happy to be on the staff at SHHS for my 15th year.  During my time as an educator, I have served as a World Geography teacher, In-School Suspension teacher, middle school counselor, and high school counselor.  I graduated from Morristown East High School and then from ETSU and Lincoln Memorial University.  I love to travel, hike, read, watch various sports, and work on projects around the house.  I have been married to my beautiful wife, Stephani, for 19 years and have two children, Carlisle and Jansen.  I am excited to help our students with their academic, career, and personal goals and look forward to an excellent school year!
